I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is.

        Quote 150by Anonymous on 17/12/2010

        A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.

                          There is but one truly serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide. Judging whether life is or is not worth living amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy.

                              If there is a soul, it is a mistake to believe that it is given tous fully created. It is created here, throughout a whole life. And living is nothing else but that long and painful bringing forth.

                                          If there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.

                                            It's a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.

                                                    It is natural to give a clear view of the world after accepting the idea that it must be clear.
